Vizio SB36512-F6:

Decoding the name of the speaker system tells us that it is made of a 36-inch soundbar that has the setting of 5.1.2. All this is available at an affordable price of $330.

Compared to the previous models, there has been an addition of subwoofers, wired pair of speakers, and supporting the Dolby Atmos.

 

Conclusion:

Vizio SB36512-F6 is a better option in terms of price. If we overlook the fact of 5.1.2 provided compared to 5.1.4 provided by Vizio 36514-G6 (the difference between the two), theSb36512 is better. It supports atmos, subwoofers, and a pair of speakers like the other but at a lower price.  

The Sound:

The most important reason to choose a speaker is for its sound. Thus, a speaker with powerful bass, amplifiers, and subwoofers is ideal. When combined with simple connectivity and control choices, the enjoyment of using speakers is multiplied tenfold.

Vizio SB36514-G6:

The Vizio SB36514-G6 has a powerful and loud sound system that can produce up to 100 decibels. However, it is has a built-in night mode which you can use to keep the sound low.

As the name suggests, it contains a 5.1.4 sound system. The five sound-directed speakers in the soundbar; are left, right, center, front, and back. One low-frequency profound bass effect. And four affects that affect the height of the sound; left, right, front, and rear.

A remote is provided that easily controls all the system’s features, from basic volume settings to more advanced speaker height adjustment settings.

Vizio SB36512-F6:

Faced upward while three faced in front, covering the right, center, and back.

The separate subwoofers provide the bass caused by low-frequency sounds. The subwoofer wirelessly and automatically connects to the soundbar.

There are also two wired speakers connected o the subwoofers. They support Dolby Atmos, which provides height to the sound and EQ to adjust the sound settings easily.

Conclusion:

In terms of sound quality, it is a tough decision. On the one hand, the SB36514-G6 offers four-height speakers (compared to the two provided by SB36512-F6) for a much better cinematic experience. On the other hand, SB36512 offers EQ settings that you can quickly shift to choice (and not available in SB36512-G6).

In the end, I think the primary use of these speakers is to provide a theater-like experience at home due to the number of speakers and their direction, and hence the SB36512-G6 takes the lead here.
